‘Apiary on Wheels’ for promoting bee-keeping

‘Apiary on Wheels’ for promoting bee-keeping

On 13th February 2020, the Union Minister of MSME Nitin Gadkari flagged off ‘Apiary on Wheels’. It is a unique concept designed by Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) for the easy upkeep and migration of Bee Boxes having live Bee colonies.

Key Points:

  • It is noted that Beekeeping looks easy but it has many intricate difficulties which only a beekeeper would understand.
  • Whereas, Apiary on Wheels will make the migration easy, the maintenance easy, easy feeding of bees and it will also help the bees to sustain even in extreme summers.
  • Apiary on Wheels is a platform that can carry 20 Bee Boxes from one place to another without any problem.
  • 2 large wheels on either side of the Apiary on Wheels and 4 separate compartments with independent doors, having five bee boxes each help the platform to remain intact without disturbing the live bee colonies.
  • Also, the Apiary on Wheels is connected with a solar panel system which automatically triggers a fan inside the compartment as soon as the temperature reaches 35-degree centigrade or above.
  • The Apiary on Wheels also has sugar drips which help to feed the bees in the summer season.
